Is there any advantage or disadvantage (beside organisation) if you "divide" the internal SSD (lets say divide a 4TB internal SSD to 2*2TB) in a new MacPro (MacOSX 15.2). The internal SSD is faster than most SSDs... so i wonder if i should do that and not use external SSDs for now (works fine with other LogicX Libs). Format of the SSDs is APFS of course.

Any advice or tipps? Just making a clean install and would love to make it "perfect" ;)

It's a long time that drives are not usually partitioned on the Mac. With SSDs being so small, it would also probably not be even worth doing it.

My suggestion is just to create a folder where to place your sound libraries. You will not even be limited by the fixed partition.

Drive partitioning is a leftover from the days when file systems couldn't handle all the space on a disk. There's no reason to ever patition a disk now, whether SSD or mechanical drive.
